As you'd imagine there is quite a scene here in Manchester especially for weed and pills but apparently the cool kids are doing nitrous at the moment (laughing gas - also actually legal...).
Like many other people said, no-one will make you do anything.
Hmm... they were selling laughing gas at an 'event' I went to in Glasgow. Didn't do much for me.
But yes, drug taking beyond the cannabis level is usually left to small groups of people who do it regularly. I've got a couple of mates who do anything and everything, but they're not the sort of people to force it on others.
Like other people have said - drugs are available if you want them. Don't go round thinking that you're gonna get pressured into taking them though, most people who have drugs want to keep them for themselves, believe me!!!
I have never witnessed any drugs or known anybody to be on ilegal drugs on my three years at university. People did suffer from drug abuse though, the amount of aclchohol and red bull some students drank was shocking.
None of my friends do drugs - but then we all got that stuff out of our system when we were about 16/17. I was seeing a guy at uni whose whole flat was a pot den and I have heard of numerous people being kicked out of halls for drug use. I guess i'd have to just support everyone else's comments, it just depends on your friends, at home you would choose whether or not to hang around with drug-takers and uni is no different. Plus I'd hope that by the time you'd got to uni most people would be strong enough in their personal convictions to not be influenced by those around them.
drugs are easy to get hold of if you want them
weed, coke and pills are pretty well-used at uni. the only difference being that if you don't use coke or are good friends with someone who does you'll very often not know about it.
oh hell yes
when i first arrived there wasn't much going on (allot of people in halls who took drugs, didn't come out and admit to this as everyone was scared they would be alienated by the anti-drugs brigade....)
but from 2nd year onwards, when houses were sorted, as people were living with their now 'close friends' the drug use became rampant...
pot all day everyday
class A's for nights out and birthdays
it's really funny becuase some on the anti-drugs brigade were opposed to using drugs in th first year. However, as they got older, more of them began smoking weed, and then began taking class a's occassionally...
whether this indicates the slippery slope drugs provide
or indicates that people are more willing to take drugs when they mature,(and become less naive and stop believing mummy and daddy/FRANK) I am not sure
never came across meow meow tho!
